A 14-year-old student was shot at an Atlanta middle school Thursday afternoon, and another student was taken into custody, police said.

An armed guard disarmed the shooter moments after the 1:50 p.m. shooting in a courtyard at the Price Middle School in southeast Atlanta.

The teen was shot in the back of the head, but the wound was apparently not life-threatening, authorities said.

Atlanta Public Schools public information officer Steve Alford said the teen’s wound was more toward the back of the neck, WXIA-TV reported.
